A common question in larger environments (multiple HMCs, many managed systems) is: where is a particular LPAR? This question can easily be answered with the LPAR tool, by using the command “lpar show“:
$ lpar show lpar02 NAME ID SERIAL LPAR_ENV MS HMCS lpar02 39 123456789 aixlinux ms21 hmc01,hmc02 $
In addition to the name, the LPAR-ID and the serial number, the managed system, here ms21, and the associated HMCs, here hmc01 and hmc02, are also shown. You can also specify multiple LPARs and/or wildcards:
$ lpar show lpar02 lpar01 ... $ lpar show lpar* ... $
If no argument is given, all LPARs are listed.
